You remember the project Christmas ball a few pages back with the Sputnik?

Now the American version cutaway 1/4 Project Vanguard II Satellite. You need not so much: First a Christmas ball (almost 5 inch), some styreen and voor interior tube etc.

It does not always have to be expensive in terms of itself make these models can easily. I did let it plating, it's metal now, but Alcad II chrome spray can also easy get a mirror look.

Total building time for this one, 30 hours.

Today ready after many hours work (a real hell of job this time) the Saturn V 1/20 in split cutaway batting version. And in plating to make it stronger and realer.

This one cost me the most time to put together releated to the special tape work in layers and pattern. But i'm happy with it.

Thanks people, for the compliment. The material I did use for batting is 0.3 mm heating up styrene sheets and the real US duct tape, total 3 layers and later it's be plating.

Wow! So Cool!

I used to own a Hasselblad 500CM camera body that looked identical to the one that you used.

Matched with Carl Zeiss lenses the Hasselblad was incredible.

I always suspected the Soviet Moon landing was faked.

But, seriously, Pascal, your work is amazing! (Or, dare I say, "Unbelievable!”)

This time something new, someone ask me to build a Christmas rocketsled for kids, for a presentation comming December here in the Netherlands does the level to kid thinking.

Rocketsled/sled rocket? does first by a little wooden sled 50 cm long a bunch styrene and thinking how it to make to inspiration kids with spacecraft. I did use a mix of the style, the time machine 1960, space shuttle and the grinch sled.

After 42 hours I have it done with lights all around and in cockpit. Who comes in to sit, come later.

Not all are from Jim Key, also from cS members, their own kit.

Here a new diorama and something else what mabe happen in the future. I did gave it the name "Breathtaking."

A future Mars astronaut on who is working with NASA hardware teraforming. A sphere in which plants make oxygen to breathe, he discharges a part of his nitrogen for the plants. Let say a little mini oxygen pump station, the super reflection solar panel and laptop ensure optimal temperature and the necessary power. Very fun project.

The resin 1/6 figure is from the sculpter Toi Ogunyoku, Jr., the rest is made by myself. I'm also busy with a female version.

See here for more photographs.

Thanks people!

For coming winter, a renovation project, much work but seems to be a challenge. All disassemble, new paint, new solar panels, etc.

  • 1/8 Apollo spacecraft
  • 1/48 metal Mir space station
  • 1/48 Mir space station and shuttle

Here my latest project end result [photo gallery], take a long time to build it up.

A Mars rover scale 1:4, there is use a huge lot of materials, 3D printing parts with help from Michael Key (thanks!) who did my info sizes in some parts. The parts I did give extra details, cables than ll let plating, does it is a metal model. The solar panel was very hard to do but I am happy with it.

Total time 702 hours, cost almost 5K ( not extra time), but here is she wake up out of her wintersleep and recharge herselves for the year 2014.
